Tableau Software Inc (DATA) on August 23, 2016 announced Narratives for Tableau. The collaboration enables Tableau Server and Tableau Public customers to receive natural language summaries that explain the insights within their data visualizations. Users can simply download the free Google Chrome extension and immediately start using it to receive intelligent narratives that can be easily embedded and shared. The extension serves as a first step towards more deeply integrating Advanced NLG into Tableau and supports Tableau’s mission to help people see and understand their data.
“With the addition of NLG, smart data discovery platforms can automatically generate a written or spoken context-based narrative of findings in the data that accompanies visualization, storyboard and batch reports, to fully inform the user about what is most important and actionable. We expect that, due to NLG’s potentially beneficial impact on the expansion of analytics to a broader audience, NLG will be a feature of most modern BI and analytics platforms by 2018,” stated Gartner, Inc. in Hype Cycle for Business Intelligence and Analytics, 2016 report (July 2016).
“We’re dedicated to making our customers successful and ensuring our technology is easy to use,” said Francois Ajenstat, Chief Product Officer at Tableau. “Narratives for Tableau aligns with both of these objectives and we are excited about the partnership with Narrative Science to embed Advanced NLG into our platform, further enabling Tableau users to quickly understand what is most interesting and important in their data.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Tableau, a company that equally shares our passion of helping people understand their data and act on it immediately,” said Stuart Frankel, CEO of Narrative Science. “By integrating Advanced NLG into the data discovery process, Tableau is giving users the best and easiest asset for understanding and sharing information — narratives.”
